Eric, today is 18 months, one and a half years since I last saw you, hugged you, said I love you. It's funny, sometimes it seems like yesterday, but usually it seems like a lifetime ago. Our life goes on, but is forever changed.
You should see your beautiful boy Dylan, he is growing up to be quite the little man. I was watching him at hockey practice the other morning and it was like I was watching you all over again. You can imagine how that makes me smile all over. He moved up to the Mites,he's #8 again like his Daddy, on the Sabres, and he is thrilled. You would be so proud of him. I know he would give anything to have you there with him, to watch him play one game, but I know you are in a better place and you'll keep him safe and you'll be watching him forever. Halloween is coming up soon, so I'll have to let you know what he is going to be this year.
I love you Eric and I miss you tremendously. They say time makes things easier, I just wonder if there is enough time in eternity because I don't feel it yet. Hanging in there, and sending you all my love, Mom
